Joe Hall Elementary School opened its doors in 1986 by the principal, Mrs. Barbara Bell. The dedication ceremony took place on March 11, 1987. The school was named after Dr. Josiah Calvin Hall, Jr., who served as Miami-Dade County Public School's superintendent from 1957 through 1968. Some of his most notable accomplishments included the successful integration of the school system, accommodating for the huge influx of Cuban refugee children, and the implementation of bilingual education programs. His motto, "Learning to Live, LIving to Learn," proudly lives on through the students at Joe Hall Elementary School.
